  1. I want to get some Madagascar hissing cockroaches guys. But my guy won’t approve.
  2. Serious conversations in here. Looks scary.
  3. Pika looks a little creepy like that. Just me?
  4. *snugs the Fortune and Lagie* It is. He’s my spirit animal. If you do, lemme know. Cries. It poofed.
  5. I guess it’s nice to have a replacement job. But yeesh. Were you looking forward to taking a break? I know I am somewhat relieved when people cancel because I can go chill. But then I make myself adult and just swap dates with another cleaning I was scheduled for a different day.
  6. Ssoooo. I want a lizard(possible lizards), but my boyfriend hates lizards. I’ve gotten him to agree with the idea of a chameleon (because somehow those are okay. I’m not gonna break the news that they don’t change colours like most think they do), but I’m not too sure it’s wise to jump into the lizard world by just immediately getting a chameleon. From what I’ve read, leopard geckos are some of the easiest to take care of. I’m wondering if I should go ahead and try to start out with an easier lizard and work my way up. Or do you thinking getting a chameleon as my first would be perfectly fine? Side note, I really want to get a few Madagascar hissing coachroachs. Those guys are pretty cool. I hear they make chill pets. Ive held one before. I feel in love.
  7. That doesn’t sound like a fun house, Lagie.
  8. I can confirm that it is still 70%. I’ve finished ground school. I just have to take the written for the certification. Really? My first flight computer snapped after a couple years. I picked it up and it just kinda quit life. Understandable and admirable. The view is beautiful up there. I love the view. Especially on an early morning or come sunset. I wouldn’t trade it for anything. It’s breathtaking up there. Ahahaha. The pilots love doing that stuff. I’ve had a guy tell a friend to take the stick. Once the guy did, the pilot stuck his hands out the window and closed his eyes. The most important thing is that you had fun!! (Well...that and safe flying procedures. These days, there are strickter rules on handing over controls. Some follow them.) Flying is one of those things. It’s easy as heck. It’s all the rules, regulations, and emergency situations you have to plan for. And at 2,000, there are not as many rules you can infringe upon, especially back then. Landing and takeoff are the most dangerous parts of the flight. En route is usually one of the safest. You can pretty much use the trim tab now-a-days to fly the plane if it doesn’t have an autopilot. Did you learn how to read the instruments in ground school? Turbulence scares a lot of people. I usually just tell people it’s nothing to worry about. Just bumps in the air. Where I live, we’ve been getting gusty weather lately. I almost soloed in winds gusting 10 for my first time, but the plane’s battery died while we were on the ground. Hahaha. Fun times. I’ve landed in gusting 12 before. I usually avoid anything stronger than 15. I’m glad you enjoyed it, though. I hope you get more opportunities!
  9. Man, I wish we lived nearby. I’d buy some from you. Do you actually sell it? Or is it just for pleasure. (Sorry if you’ve mentioened this previously. I didn’t see)
  10. Awww. Mine sleeps on his back sometimes. Absolutely adorable.
  11. *snugs Fort* My autocorrect thought I wanted to type “snogs” There are holidays right now?? There was Easter, but that’s it for awhile right?
  12. *snuggles the spirit* Haihai. I’m sleepy. I made the the mistake of yawning and now my eyes are drooping. *falls over and sips at offered coffe* How’s y’all?
  13. Part of me wants to get a pet tarantula. Anybody got some coffee?
  14. Been through ground school. I’ve had to take two jobs to put myself through flight school. Oh my gosh, is it expensive. How long ago did you want to go into flight school? It sadly took me longer than normal to solo because I wasn’t flying as often in the beginning. I’ve been making enough this year to fly once to twice a week. I’m waiting until I cross-country to take my written test. I’ve only flown over a grass-field once when I was 18 in a tail wheel. It was some fun, I’ll tell ya that. That’s pretty awesome. I imagine the stadium looked amazing from the air. Im just flying by myself. It’s wonderful. Flying at all is absolutely amazing. I wouldn’t ever trade it for anything else. Tendem parachute? That sounds awesome. Hahaha. Bet she floated off the airstrip though. I’ve been flying a diamond da20. That girl floats like no one’s business. You have to dip her tail with full power out to get a nice landing. Sad you didn’t get to jump though. Will you get another chance? Aww. Haha. I imagine the poor pilot was surprised and possibly somewhat amused after the fact. I’ve never had that opportunity. Maybe because you got there first! Hopefully, one day I’ll be working up there. That’s the ultimate goal. Or maybe I can settle as a corporate pilot. We’ll see!! I don’t remember what my first airliner was. We were always flying. My earliest memory was as a younger kid. I was probably around 5. My sister and I were apparently very well behaved children from what I’ve heard. We were so well behaved that the stewardesses gave us some free toys and doted on us. And then one of the pilots came back and gave us some little aviator pins. I remember being very happy with that. Idk if that was special treatment or they did it for everyone. My first flight in a smaller airplane was in a Rockwell commander at 16. I went through a camp and in the end, we all got to go up with someone and they would let us fly. Most of the kids only got to go once, but some guy that worked there pushed for multiple pilots to take me up. It was really awesome. That was the day I knew I wanted to be a pilot. I wish it wasn’t so hard and expensive, but I won’t give up if I can help it! My grandpa flew in WW2 (I believe) and he had his own plane for a long while. He’s a little old fashioned in concern with women and flying. He wasn’t extremely suportive at first. But, now that I’ve soloed, he’s a little more supportive. He seems to believe in me now. I’m eternally grateful for that. And my parents seem pretty proud. Now, I’ve just gotta get that piece of paper that says I’m certified!!
  15. Any enthusiasts? Do you enjoy flying as a passenger? Do you fly as PIC? Any CFIs or commercial pilots here? Tell me about your experiences! If you’re a pilot, how many hours do you have? What are your goals? Afraid of flying? Love flying? Why?
  16. My family makes kombucha. My grandma was really good at it before she passed away. I want to to make some muscadine wine one day. That could be yummy. I’m not sure I have as much patience as you guys have.
  17. Today was good. Started out a little poorly. One of the guys I clean for needed his plane detailed. I called to figure out when the mechanic was doing the oil change. He said he wasn’t. Awesome. Drive the 30 minutes to the airport. I’m just pulling up when I get a call that another mechanic said he had time to do the oil change. Now one I gotta figure what the flip to do. Get there and decide to make the best out of the situation. Vacuum the inside. (Mechanic was actually pretty careful to not dirty the inside up when he did his runup.) 👍🏻 An hour later and a $150 oil change for the owner, I finally get to have the plane to myself. Five hours later, I finished. White plane was beautifully white. Owner of the plane loaded his plane up with containers of pretzels. Looked like a good twenty jars. Hahaha. God bless pilots. They’re wonderful to work for most of the time. Oh yes. It was finally not below 60° F or raining on a plane detailing. However, I am sunburnt even though I mostly “chilled” under the plane. Hahaha. Gotta love that plane grease. It was beautiful when I finished though! Got to hang out with my sister for a few hours. It was lovely. Chatted with her. Bought some cute as fudge Easter gnomes for the yard. Bought some cheap groceries. Mostly fruit snacks and Gatorade. Found a good sounding watermelon! OuO Excited about that. Time me to sleep and then work from 8am-7pm tomorrow!! Gotta prep for my area solo coming up. And then, I get to get my cross countries done!! I’m so hyped.
  18. Soooo. Endgame. Anyone wanna talk about it? Cause my soul is crushed.
  19. No. But I’m seeing significantly less of the pgymies as compared to the vibrants. I spent about 8 minutes hunting. Kept refreshing the coast and within minutes of each other, I caught two of the sea smelling eggs. I believe is was in the cave for about 7 minutes before I saw one. It seems to be taking so long because of the cave blockers. I think the trick is patience. They’re easier to catch if you can actually see them.
